Forum: GratefulDead Subject: It's all in how you look at it

So today I realized I am actually pretty lucky... I was at work doing my job, line cook at a chain restaurant, when I slipped in 6-9-77, second set and played it LOUDLY!!!! My favorite Mexican lady says the first English I have heard her say, Music is good!! She doesn't understand the words but is into the jams!! The others in the kitchen didn't quite know what to make of it but they knew to dance. So I get to jam at work, maybe turn on some international Deadheads, and well, I get to jam at work!!!LOUDLY!!!! And I also realized that jams speak a language all its own, I think next will be Dark Star from Live Dead.

I have yet to hear whats special on 6/9/77. I always see it being high touted, but when I listen it doesn't pop. Thats the same with the big RFK show-6/73 (was it also 6/9 that gets all the acclaim?)Oh well. I'll try again sometime.

Hey JodyC: .. though 77-06-09 is definitely hot, whenever I start to listen to it my heart gets pulled back a month to 77-05-09 ("Comes a Time" -- priceless, timeless, filled with Grace). Hey, thanks for all your contributions to this Forum - I appreciate them; thank you. --- AshesRising

The 5/7, 5/8 and 5/9 run is hard to beat, and doesn't hurt that 5/7 was my first show.I love the St.Louis show a few nights later on 5/16. Again, maybe I need to focus better, but these shows grab your ear if you're NOT focused. I will try again.

JodyC: -- did you see that whole run or just the 7th? -- what a blessing, to see any one of those shows as your first. Truly incredible. I just discovered the 16th, 17th, the Mosque (sp?) all last night --- also, I'm trying to find someone who was at the Binghampton show (1977-11-06; Broome County) --that ending from "St Stephan > until the atomic ending of Truckin'" is out of this galaxy -- would love to know what it was like to experience it in-person. --- AshesRising

Just the 7th and was too new to know what was going on. Fun to hear the show nearly 30 yrs later. Damn, that was good- wish I could have appreciated it! Myy roomate from sr yr at college was at the Broome Co show. We went to Hartwick College in Oneonta Ny. Jerry played at our school one year (maybe it was over at SUCO).He still beems when talking about the Broome show, even though I recall a car wreck of some sort. Oh the prices we paid. So how do you compare the Broome show with 6/9? I take Broome every time.

JodyC: to be fair to the band and the music I cannot compare those two shows --- kinda like trying to choose beside one child over another - both unique, however one has a dash of "something" extra (Broome County). - Binghampton's Scarlet is the only one I've heard with that little extra jam after the first or second verse; haven't heard it again -- always wondered if something happened on stage or if it was just a Jerry moment. That Wharf Rat "march" is something to behold but then that last jam of Truckin' is beyond comprehension. (Lost a girlfriend or two ove the years due to that Binghampton tape turned up to "11"...no problem, I'd still choose Broome County or Winterland, 77-06-09, over them anyway!!) --- AshesRising

Hey AshesRising, jammin to Broome County once again, thanks for the kind reminder. Yes, that short jam after the first verse of Scarlet is sweet. Take a closer listen, there is no fourth verse, instead they go right into the jam. Are there any others like this?

stillDead77: - just saw your post and am preparing for a meeting. No fourth verse in "Scarlet?" - is that the "Strangers stopping Strangers" verse? -- wow, I never noticed. (I think Jerry does only two verses of "Fire" which he had done a few times throughout '77.) I wish the Dick's Pick release was Broome County instead of the previous evening, however they probably had problems with tapes, etc.

No 4th verse, "Well there ain't nothing wrong with the way she moves, Scarlet Begonias or a touch of the blues. And theres nothing wrong with the look thats in her eyes."

There in spirit.

Brother -- did you know that it was Jerry who changed the lyric to "look" as opposed to Hunter's lyric:
"And there's nothing wrong with
the LOVE that's in her eye.."
...doesn't matter to me; I sure would like to meet her....hearts were made to be broken! --- AshesRising

Thanks for the tip-bit brother, how are you feeling today? I am feeling much better after listening to that gem from 11-77.

Have you ever checked out David Gray on the Archive? I have been diggin his stuff, Live and Studio. Check out 9-27-2000 if ya have some time. Real soulful and strong material.

Jody: I love 6-9-77, as well as 6-7 and 6-8 too.

AshesRising, I thought I was the only one who has lost girls for playing Dead tapes turned up to 11.

..I gotta get to a Board meeting -- if I keep hanging here this morning they'll be drinking Kool-Aid at lunch! THAT would be something to tape!!
...on some weekend night when everyone's "primed" you should put up a post asking people about girlfriends, boyfriends, family members, etc that have left because of the "music, sweet music." There must be an infinite amount of stories out here --- bet nobody's dog has ever left 'cuz of the Dead. --- they know the Deal!
-- thanks for asking about the health b.s.: feel like shit; gotta get off pain meds; am going on short-term disability on Friday which is a huge blessing to get the "real" Ashes back to Life; thank you for asking.
..I'll check out that cat you mentioned when I return tomorrow or late tonight. "One way or another / This darkness got to give..." -- AshesRising

Girlfriend or Broome turned up to 11. Hard to compare the two.No wonder women find men difficult to understand. Way to make the tough choice!!

JodyC: it really wasn't that tough...they made the decision for me. Here's a typical "Grateful Dead" moment - birthday of the first one that split - no lie: NOV. 6! Broome County: NOV. 6 ...Jerry, Hunter and the Muse have never done me wrong. Enjoy your Wednesday, - AshesRising

6-9-77 I love the second set. What I really enjoy is that nights versions of Estimated into St. Steven. I love that funky riff in Estimated and Jerry seems to take it a bit further with lots of his trademark "wah" sounds and then carries that into St.Steven. It is really awesome REALLY LOUD!! The rest of the show is decent also, but for me it is the above mentioned.

6/9/77 was my first show. I was up in the balcony getting real stoned (didn't dose) for the first set and the start of the second. Started getting a little spaced, so I got up and began wandering around. I found myself at the back of the floor with all the dancers during Franklin's. "...if you get confused, listen to the music play!". Man, I was hooked for life at that moment--truly, in that one instant, I GOT IT!!!

Jeeez - and i thought i was the only one who was never totally "turned on" by that 73 RFK show. Guess its nice to hear that a couple of other people feel the same way. I was so psyched to dl it (back when the boards were up) - was expecting greatness, but it just didn't deliver.

Agreed on Kezar73. To each their own.RFK will probably always be seeding somewhere.

I work in a large underground warehouse. It's pretty draining being in here all day with no windows and it's temperature controlled so it's always in the low 50s.
Anyway, the other day I had 3/1/68 playing at my desk, pretty good and loud and I headed over to the other side of the warehouse where a guy had 'Europe 72' playing loudly. The whole warehouse was like a Dead time machine. Anyway, we had a new woman working with us. It was her first day and none of us had spoken much with her. We left her alone for a few minutes while we had a huddle about something and I looked over and she was dancing around by herself to the music.
Very cool....
